I have been having problem my internet being very slow the past few days. It starts to load a page, but then goes very slow to the point where I have to hit the refresh button, sometimes several times. I have McAfee virus protection and have scanned my compaq presario computer. I have also run my adware program to get rid of problems, but it is still very slow at times. I have a broadband connection and am using a Linksys router across the room where my cable modem is located and I also have a Linksys wireless B adapter on my computer and my daugter's computer in her room. I am not sure what I should do to try to correct this problem. Any ideas?

Please run hijackthis (see link in my signature), then save a log and AS A TEXT FILE (FILE > SAVE AS) then ATTACH IT (do not post) to your next post.

We do not like to post hijackthis logs in sections other than the malware forum as we do not want to encourage people to post malware issues in this forum.

I am not looking for malware. I am looking for what programs or combinations of programs might cause this behavior. If I notice any malware, I will redirect you to the malware forum.

If you post a hijackthis log in this forum, several trusted techs will come to your house and eat all of your Ritz crackers, Cheeze Doodal and any sweet pickles you have in your fridge. We will also put our feet up on all of your coffee tables. This is no joke. We'll do it. It's not pretty.

Gerry,

When I click your link for HijackThis, it opens another browser screen. Do I click the Download now link to start this program or do I go to the Homepage link on the page. The Hompage link mentions Merlin in it.

Thanks for your help.
